Keegan Bradley looking for big Masters debut

Keegan Bradley is hoping to make as big an impact at his first Masters as he did on the PGA Tour last year, as big even as Fuzzy Zoeller who won on his first visit to Augusta National.

"I'm going to put a lot of time in (preparing for the Masters)," said Bradley, surprise winner of the PGA Championship last year.

He will make his final tuneup this week in the Shell Houston Open.

"I'm trying my best to play well (at Augusta) my first year," he said.

Bradley has certainly put in the practice hours. The 25-year-old has already visited Augusta National three times in the last few months. He also has plans to go again this week, and he's previously been with Phil Mickelson, who's taken the youngster under his wing.

"There's not a better person to go up to Augusta with than Phil," said Bradley, who was selected 2011 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year after winning twice. "I seem to go play with Phil and he gives me a good beating, and I play really well the week after. It seems to work out.

". . . Watching Phil, I'm amazed. It's even annoying, but I'm amazed at how often he can get it up-and-down."

And the feeling of affection is clearly mutual from Lefty's side.

"I really like Keegan," Mickelson said. "He's a great guy. He's a great player, and I think a lot of him. I think he's a tremendous talent, and I like playing with him.

"We've had some great practice rounds, good fun. You can be very relaxed around him, and he takes things well. You can rough him up a little bit, and he'll give it right back."
